Product design is an interesting system, but it’s inherently complex. Oftentimes, designers craft industrial items for a variety of different manufacturers, and in the case of OTHERWARE, connecting the dots might not be the most intuitive process. Regardless of its identity, the created-by-Pentatonic brand has linked up with Pharell Williams’ collective, i am OTHER, for a “cutting edge” collection of camp-focused essentials, resulting in the colorful ‘Pebble.’
The all-encompassing collection provides buyers with a handful of essential cutlery and cuisine items, including a straw, chopsticks, spoon, fork, and knife. But what makes the colorful capsule so unique is its construction and manufacturing process, which calls upon anodized, titanium-coated steel, recycled food packaging, and recycled CDs to create each utensil’s unique architecture. Aside from its compact, sustainable focus, Pentatonic has also revealed that the Pebble will also be entirely recyclable, opting to buy it back once it’s been thoroughly used, and allowing for the company to create another product with its remnants. The five-piece capsule can be purchased on OTHERWARE’s website for around $60.
